Enter the Black Jar Honey Contest at the Summer Meeting!

Make plans to enter the Black Jar Honey Tasting Contest at the WHPA/MHPA Summer Meeting at the DoubleTree Hilton in St. Paul, MN July 11-13! Please note: this is NOT the same as a honey judging show typically held at the Fall Convention. Honey flavor and taste are the driving indicators of winning entries.

  1. Entry must be a 1-pound jar of honey
  2. Free to enter (we’ll say that again…FREE!)
  3. One entry per person
  4. Entry must be produced by entrant
  5. Must be a WHPA or MHPA member to enter
  6. All Summer Meeting attendees may vote
  7. Prizes awarded for 1st place entry from each state and the Border Battle Champion
  8. Entries must be dropped off by 10:10am on Friday, July 12, 2024
  9. Voting for both states will take place 11:00am – 2:45pm Friday, July 12, 2024
  10. Border Battle Finals between the 1st place entry from each state will take place 8:00am – 11:30am on Saturday, July 13, 2024
  11. Winners will be announced at 12:30pm on Saturday, July 13, 2024

In a black jar contest, all that matters is how good the honey tastes to the judges. Honey jars will be covered so voting is anonymous and based only on flavor. Entries will not be returned to the entrant.
